Hi,

I'm trying to set up Majordomo-1.93 on the system running FreeBSD 950412 
SNAP. The problem is, as usualy, permissions. If I use BSD settings shown 
below, I get "error: recompile with POSIX flags"

W_USER=daemon
W_GROUP=majordom
W_CHOWN=${W_USER}.${W_GROUP}
W_CHMOD=6755
WRAPPER_FLAGS = -DBIN=\"${W_BIN}\" -DPATH=\"PATH=${W_PATH}\"    \
        -DHOME=\"HOME=${W_HOME}\" -DSHELL=\"SHELL=${W_SHELL}\"  \
        -DMAJORDOMO_CF=\"MAJORDOMO_CF=${W_MAJORDOMO_CF}\"

If I use POSIX settings, I get the "unknown mailer error 5" message. The 
settings are as following:

W_UID = 199
W_GID = 27
W_CHOWN=root
W_CHMOD=4755
WRAPPER_FLAGS = -DBIN=\"${W_BIN}\" -DPATH=\"PATH=${W_PATH}\" \
       -DHOME=\"HOME=${W_HOME}\" -DSHELL=\"SHELL=${W_SHELL}\" \
       -DMAJORDOMO_CF=\"MAJORDOMO_CF=${W_MAJORDOMO_CF}\"       \
       -DPOSIX_UID=${W_UID} -DPOSIX_GID=${W_GID} -DSETGROUP

199 is majordom uid, 27 is majordom gid.
In both cases, all files and directories under W_BIN are owned by 
majordom:majordom.

I know there many people using Majordomo on FreeBSD systems. Could you 
please give me a hint. Please reply to splyaski@cmp.com. Thanks.
